Thinking about moving to the suburbs of Denver to buy a home? Are you wanting less traffic in you travels, and more open space to relax in? You might consider Aurora, as an alternative to living outside the Denver city limits. The average home price in Aurora is $188,000, making it more affordable for first time buyers. This area also has much room to grow for step up buyers. Even with the nickname of “Gateway to the Rockies”, Aurora Colorado is just 11 miles from the Denver metro area, which makes for a great balance of metro and suburban lifestyles.
Aurora is the state’s third largest city, with almost 300,000 residents that call the area home. By day, nature lovers enjoy daily escapes to the vast park and trail system that sprawls throughout their community. The Aurora Cherry Creek Reservoir is part of the natural beauty of the area, offering swimming, walking, wind-sailing or fishing opportunities, year around. Those wanting dining and entertainment, choose from more than 100 restaurants and bars, many of which offer music ranging from Blues & Jazz, to Hip-Hop, Country, Salsa and more. The cultural diversity and the amenities of the area make it a top choice for homebuyers looking to raise families.
